7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8376
Traveled As: Family (young children)

Ports of call were great! However, the service seemed subpar- maybe because it was winter break week and we had a packed ship. We waited over an hour for my time dining one evening and the waiters/waitresses while perfectly nice, were not as attentive as we're used to. Also, ship decor was down right tacky and ugly! Ship seems in need of a good dry dock soon. Lastly, the entertainment seemed pretty off- many overlapping activities and shows without adequate announcements and the shows were not very good. They even forced everyone out of the comedy club between each comedian ( I suppose to give others a chance at a seat in the small club) but it was quite annoying to get comfy, work up a laugh, then be asked to go outside and line up again!

Nice cabin- though our balcony seemed to need a thorough cleaning.
